    I opened up an email from my condo association and shortly after got phoney pop ups about having a virus and I needed a free scan. This wasn't from ESET so I closed browser. I did a full scan with ESET and nothing. I did a scan with spy sweeper and it found 9 things. 2 high risk. It cleaned the files, but not sure why ESET didn't stop it. Attaching file to see if anyone has seen these before. Wanted to send to ESET, but not sure what spy sweeper did with the files

    You can't expect ESET to detect every single rogue out there. I'm sure there are plenty of rogues that ESET will detect that SS will not.

    Cookies are not dangerous, ESET doesn't detect them at all. The ObfJS-S thing can be just a webpage with a fake AV interface or an obfuscated javascript code that downloads the actual payload which may be detected. Unfortunately, without submitting those files we're unable to tell if they are valid malicious files or something that shouldn't be detected.

    Oops sorry, I read his post wrong. I thought he posted a rogue screen shot.

    7 of the 9 risks are just cookies which, as Marcos said, aren't dangerous. You can delete them yourself by clearing your browsing history/cookies/cache. It's misleading if they're stated to be threats.
